NFS filehandle size problem in GFS2/core NFS
Last modified: 2008-04-25 03:30:58 EDT
Description of problem:
The size of a filehandle in the core NFS code has been reduced to less than the
size of a GFS2 filehandle. We need to:
a) Create a reduced size fh for GFS2 so that we can support NFSv2 correctly and
b) Fix the core code such that we can continue to support the original fh size
This is only a problem in the upstream kernel, its not in RHEL.
